Uplifting and bright, this fine overture was written for the Salt Lake Symphonic Winds. Images of flight are suggested through the composer's use of rhythm and tempo. The middle section has solo lines for trumpet andclarinet and is beautifully scored utilizing the many different colors available to the wind medium. Various cross cueings allow the conductor/director freedom to tailor the piece to fit a particular ensemble. An excellent choice for high school and community bands alike.
